*TODAY IS THE DAY. If the Flyers are going to win this series it’s going to be on the back of Claude Giroux. Good thing we already know that G can take the weight. [NHL.com]

*We’ll also need big things from Jake Voracek if there’s going to be a chance. [Philly.com]

*And Brian Elliott. Brian Elliott needs to be on his game. Really, for the Flyers to win this series everyone needs to bring big things, every game, 60 minutes. It can be done. [Philly.com]

*We’ve got a lot of time to kill today before the puck drops, and let’s not pretend any of us are going to be able to focus on work. Take a deep dive into how these two teams match up with Charlie, who reviewed a lot of tape and looked at how the Flyers and Pens perform in all three zones. [The Athletic]

*And Meltzer takes a look at how the two teams compare on offense. [Flyers]

*The Flyers are a young team with a lot of guys who are about to get their first taste of NHL playoff action. [Courier-Post]

*Are you nervous about the Flyers having to lean on a few key guys with no playoff experience? You shouldn’t be, because the rookies aren’t even a tiny bit nervous. [BSH]

*Our pals - and sworn enemies - over at Penburgh broke down expectations for the series from their side. [Pensburgh]

*In the interest of covering all sides, let’s take a look at all the reasons why the Flyers could lose this series. [BSH]

*And finally, kill some of the long hours before tonight’s game with this week’s episode of BSH Radio, in which we break down what we reasonably think could happen in this series. [BSH]
